Edible Queens: The Green Issue

Members of the Briarwood CSA got a copy of the new GREEN issue of Edible Queens magazine at heir pickup on Sunday. Members, tell us: Which article(s) did you like the most?

What We Got: August 25, 2019

Sunday's distribution was a great experience as members got to know more members and we had some good talks on food, farm, CSA and other related  (and unrelated) matters. The farm 🚜came through for us, as always. We got the new Green Issue of Edible Queens! And we are planning an Event (see below)

EVENT: Zina has graciously offered her place and we have two Saturdays in late September as possible dates. We will send a survey asking which one works for you. Thx to Zina and Nazneen, who are coordinating.

Thx Nazneen for bringing surplus to the shelter. πŸ’“

Things to work on: The white plastic bags from the farm have SOOO much stuff and the handles tend to sometimes break. We strongly advise that members bring their own strong, reliable canvas bags. If you do, the farm would appreciate the return of the white bags, as they cost---and it would be green to reuse those.🌎

We hope you are CSA happy.πŸ‘

Thank you, everyone----

Loan Program

Thanks to a generous grant from the Citizens Committee of New York City (CCNYC), the Kew Gardens CSA and the Briarwood CSA have a Revolving Loan program intended to help people join who might otherwise not be able to.
We have about 5 slots available for members who want farm fesh veggies and other items.

We will put down the initial payment for the season. Members will agree to pay biweekly, with all monies due in November.
The intention of this grant is to expand and diversify CSA membership.

Members, please get friends to join.

If interested, contact us, please.

One of the benefits of CSA membership is that we can shop at the Garden of Eve webstore to supplement our weekly share. Pick from a  variety of items and they will be delivered.

The deadline is always Tuesday at midnight. That is today, folks.
Hamptons Honey

  Briarwood CSA is currently on hiatus and will NOT be available for the 2022 season. We will post an update when we resume operations.
